Trade and sanctions have been at the forefront of the political arena in recent years. As global trade relationships have changed, so have economic sanctions laws and regulations. They have become more complex, affecting all industries. The pandemic itself has created even more headwinds. Sanction regimes are growing and with that growth comes a heightened responsibility to mitigate compliance risk in order to have clearer vision as to what business can and cannot do. There is a struggle to make sense of policies in conflict around the world as businesses face disparate impact while at the center of a risky global business environment. This session will discuss the implications of trade and sanctions and how coordination at both the business and compliance levels is as critical as ever.
